Tour Montparnasse

With its 210 metres in height and 60 floors, the Montparnasse Tower is Paris’ tallest skyscraper.

Tour Maine-Montparnasse, or simply Tour Montparnasse, is a 210-metre tall (689 feet) skyscraper located in the Montparnasse area of Paris. The tower has 60 floors, of which 53 are occupied by various offices, bars and restaurants.

The 56th floor is where you can find the observation deck, from where you’ll see all the largest and most important monuments in the city. Three floors up, on the 59th floor, you can enjoy a 360° view of the entire city from the panoramic terrace. You can [get your ticket to the panoramic terrace online here]( ?, which will be cheaper and faster than getting it on-site.

While the climb up the first 56 floors is by lift - and a really fast one at that: only 38 seconds - the last three have to be reached by way of three flights of stairs, but honestly, it’s all worth it. The view covers a radius of 40 km (25 miles), and it is said you can even see planes taking off from Orly Airport.

If you want to get a good look at Paris, Tour Montparnasse is an occasion like no other, so we highly recommend it.
